Nightmares – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)


can i walk with you tonight
can i walk with you,
in the land of my dreams
the place,
that i feel scares me to death
why don’t you take my hand
do not be an enemy
just be a friend
what have i done –
to deserve my nightmares
where is the place,
that every night –
cripples me with such pain
i know it, but i cannot stop –
going there again

James Garratt – 1994
